Thurso CastleNear Thurso stands this gatelodge, the only thing that is still intact of Thurso Castle. The castle was build in the 17th century on a place where a Norse fortress has stood since the 12th century. In the 19th century the castle became part of a larger Baronial mansion by Sir Tollemache Sinclair. But it burned down and now is a ruin.
